It's actually quite nice to know that I don't have to do any more travel until next year. I'm a little exhausted after the last month of galavanting here, there and everywhere.

Going to bed at 9:30pm. Unheard of.

Celebrating 21 years of the funny little monkey who came into this world at the end of one of the worst years of my life. I *may* have teared up just a little when she thanked me in her speech.




* Meaning, I *did*.

Smashed out an essay in under 4 hours then headed off to indulge in good food, good wine, good friends and dancing the night away. Life is good.

In over 20 years of living away from the place, I still have yet to get on a flight leaving for Radders that leaves on time.

Universe, what do you mean by this?!

Happy Birthday Brutha. Not much has changed in 40-odd years; you still give no f****s and I'm still raging at the world.

My acupuncturist is lovely, but she sure does have some batshit crazy treatment methods.


Monday, 23 November 2015

Can I make it through to Thursday without losing my mind?

Maybe.

Sunday, 22 November 2015

SOOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to my own bed, having worked the last 8 days straight.

ETA for finishing bump-out by our SM: 9.30pm
ETA for finishing bump-out by our Tech Director: Midnight

Actual finish of bump-out: 8:50pm

Never been so happy to have them get it wrong, ever.

Packed houses for our first GP performances in Natimuk and fantastic responses. Hashtag winning.

Thursday, 19 November 2015

So I *may* have been too in character as a participant in one of the shows and broken the prop cricket bat. Cue a 25 min drive to Horsham to buy them a new one in time for tomorrow's shows.

When you're in the middle of an epic bump-in on a 39C day, a 5-hour power blackout just as you're about to focus and plot is a tad inconvenient. Our poor techs.

Tuesday, 17 November 2015

The internet in Natimuk is dire, so I've escaped into Horsham to upload an assignment and take advantage of the local library's internet. I can see this happening at least one more time this week...

Monday, 16 November 2015

It's going to be in the high 30s (celsius) in the Wimmera this week. 

I may melt. Hot weather without any form of water nearby is possibly one of my least favourite things after kale and bad grammar.

It takes almost one and a half listenings of Hamilton to drive from Melbourne to Natimuk. That's a lot of singing. Just as well no one had to share the drive with me except Ready for Action Hillary.

Attempting to find quality sources on magic in the middle ages is nigh on impossible. There's a mountain of rubbish out there.

Friday, 13 November 2015

If I've achieved nothing else this week, I take pride in the fact that I introduced one of our dance lecturers to this film.

She's my age, yet had never seen it.

Her mind was blown.

BLOWN.

Had every intention of studying, but then got suckered in to something called Gogglebox and ended the night watching this awful, awful, terrible, film. Surely the worst of their partnership.

Wednesday, 11 November 2015

Some dude from Telstra's been dicking around outside all morning and as a result the internet has been SO. SLOW.

I'm trying to study... as a result, I'm all like:


Tuesday, 10 November 2015

OMG. Emma Thompson. This.

BRILLIANT.



ALL THE AWARDS.

Insinuating that Meryl Streep plays a huge role in your movie by featuring her prominently on the poster, when in reality she's only in it for a sum total of about 4 minutes, is more than a bit insulting to the likes of Anne-Marie Duff, who has far more screen time and is just as excellent an actress. Hollywood, you annoy me sometimes.

Saturday, 7 November 2015

No study done, but my house is spotless* and I cooked a cracking curry for dinner.

Procrastination, thy name is m_m.




* Not hyperbole. I literally got down on my knees and scrubbed the tiles on the bathroom floor with bleach. Madness.

My lovely mate JJ is in Melbs for a bit directing some shows, and we caught up today. When I told her I'd gone back to uni and was doing a BA in English Lit, her immediate response was "for fun, right?".

THIS IS WHY WE ARE FRIENDS.

She totally gets it.

So far, she's the only one who has.

Thursday, 5 November 2015

Yeah, so modern dance. I get it. I appreciate it. But I don't necessarily like it.

Wednesday, 4 November 2015

Four out of five things on the to-do list achieved.

The fifth is going to take a while though...*



* Study. Lots of it. Welp!

Tuesday, 3 November 2015

It's very challenging being the organised one when you're surrounded by scatterbrained, demanding academics.

Last minute much?

Monday, 2 November 2015

My poor Brutha cannot catch a break... last season he couldn't play cricket because he'd almost sliced his thumb off at work; this season he screws up his knee in one of the first matches of the season... hello reconstructive surgery.

Dude.

Sunday, 1 November 2015

Thanks Sydney, that was fun.

I won't be rushing back though... soz.

Melbs is where it's at.
